Coppins Walk Track (part of The Coastal Walk)

Walk Difficulty Coppins Track runs between Diamond Bay and Sorrento Ocean Beach. It is a 3km guided historic walk that winds along the cliff tops tracing the history of the area over the last 100 years. The track follows sections of the original 1800s limestone paved footpath. Numbered pegs along the track correspond with the Coppins Track Park Note and lead you to several lookouts with spectacular coastal scenery.

A circuit walk east of Diamond Bay provides access to historic St Pauls Lookout, a strategic observation site for the early settlers and gives stunning views over the Bay of Islands. Continuing west for 1km, follow Coppins Track past the steps to St Pauls Beach and on to Sorrento Back Beach where there are toilets, drinking water, a Surf Lifesaving clubhouse and café. This walk can be completed in either direction, and can be extended as part of the Coastal Walk.

The Coastal walk along the southern side of the Mornington Peninsula offers spectacular scenery stretching 30kms between Cape Schanck and the Point Nepean National Park. The Coastal Walk encompasses many smaller sections of Ocean Beach walking trails, some along gravel tracks and parts along the sandy beaches. It changes from rugged rocky ocean coast at Cape Schanck to dense coastal vegetation along the way and finally to the famous sandy surf beaches through Rye and Sorrento. There are several sections that can be completed seperately as shorter walks if desired.
